Amazing, there are others like me... I was in pain for 1,5 years trying to solve the issue with core stabilization exercises and then decided to do the laparoscopic mesh repair (TEPP) which is in fashion among Greek soccer and basketball players. Well, that didnot go well. 10% or not, I was the case with extreme postop pain in other areas of the abdominals, due to the mesh and the nails. After 1 year of exercises and rehab I managed to reduce these pains and I was left with the original one (as well as two useless meshes for life). I was about to give up and start taking the pills that doctors gave me to deal with "chronic unidentified neurologic pain" but then i remembered Dr.Muschaweck. She really is the latest trend in SportsHernia but i didn't choose her in the first place because she sometimes resects nerves to eliminate the sense of pain. So i visited her and she told me that she does this only in a 5-10% of the cases and that it's not a big issue apart from a numbness in the area (if you search in the internet the percentage switches from 5 to 95%...)But hey, this is a body area very crucial for me and my family...
So my question is: can anyone fill me in on this nerve cutting issue?
P.S: Fuerza, I am as angry as you but dont take it personally, its only business for the doctors. My doctor was sencere enough to tell me pre-op: "I'm best at what i do and i guarrantee I will do it properly, let's hope it will work". Overall, I think that the best way to start with operations must be with Muschaweck's minimal repair and if that doesnt work you can always get the mesh or open your guts and cut your abductors.
